I followed the recipe exactly and it was very good resulting in the above rating. My better half really liked it a lot, but we decided to increase the sauce by 1/2 as suggested by other viewers. I live at 5500 feet. I have not been making this type of recipe since the potatoes always tasted a little bony. I got around this by microwaving my potatoes for 3 minutes and let them cool before slicing. I use my mandolin to slice my precooked potatoes as I find that there is more even cooking. It was very good. The second time I made this, I added some chopped green chili and some cut up ham. This made an awesome dinner for the two of us. So yummy!! I plan on trying it in the crockpot as others have suggested. One last thing...I make my cheese sauce in the microwave. I melt the butter in the container for 1 minute, add the flour and seasonings, whisking the butter and flour together. I then microwave that for one minute. Lastly I add the milk and slowly whisk that in. I then microwave this on high at 2 minute intervals for about six minutes until nice and thick. I then add the cheese and stir to incorporate. If the cheese is a little slow to melt, I will stick it back into the microwave for about 20 seconds. I do this in a large 4 cup microwave safe measuring cup which allows me to pour it onto the sliced potatoes. If you want to cook your onions, add them to the melted butter and microwave for about two minutes before adding the milk.
